resizing series of images (convert)

Hello All,

I want to use "convert" to resize a series of images in one folder.
When I am running: convert -resize 800x600 *.jpg
only last jpeg-picture is resized. How to resize a series of images?

I don't want to resize all pictures manually.
Any ideas,

I switch my mom from xp to ubuntu and I am a linux noobie. I know for xp you can get powertoys for it and then right click on a image to resize it.

Is there away to add this convert command in the right click dialog box?

She kind of a computer noobie all around and less programs and steps to mess with will make her happy.

I want her linux experience to be the best. Tired of reloading computers, fixing spyware machines, and recommending lots of $$$ on cheap working security software.

Got it

Ubuntu 7.10-The Gutsy Gibbon

install imagemagick
sudo apt-get install imagemagick

sudo apt-get install nautilus-actions
(Note: make sure dropbox Show All available applications)
find Nautilus Action Configuration check click apply
after install goto System->Preferences->Nautilus Action Configuration

Click Add
ON Menu Item & Action Tab
Label: Image Resizer (Thats what I named mine)
Tooltip: This resizes Image (My tooltip message)
Icon: (if you need one I might make one later)
Parameters:%M -resize 50%% %d/resize%f

(Note: %M is for full path and file. -resize is a convert option, 50%% 50% is half size the extra % is for adding a % to the command, %d is for the path, / is needed, resize%f is to name the resized file resize+old=filename)
ON Conditions Tab
filenames: *jpg;*.JPG;*.jpeg;*.JPEG
(I added these the convert does more so its flexable if needed )

Mimetypes: image/*
Theres other stuff for multiple files but haven't expermented with it so check it out.

Thank You wawosz, acid_kewpie for starting this post and giving me knowledge of convert

Thank You
for the knowledge of Nautilus Actions
